Commercial Litigation

Nearly every business will need to protect its rights in court at some point during its life. Lenhart Pettit represents businesses and individuals in all forms of commercial litigation, from routine claims to highly complex disputes. We also recognize that litigation can be costly, and have successfully pursued alternative resolutions for our clients short of the courtroom.

Often a timely resolution can be reached for any dispute. However, our attorneys are prepared to handle claims all the way through trial and, if necessary, appeal. Our attorneys have tried cases to verdict on behalf of Fortune 500 companies, start-up ventures, family businesses, agricultural interests, governmental entities and non-profits. No matter the type of entity, disputes can and will impact your business. When such disputes arise, our attorneys partner with you to achieve the best result.

Our experience includes:

  • Intra-company disputes, including partnership dissolutions, shareholder derivative suits, and corporate control cases;
  • Employment litigation, including violations of non-compete agreements, discrimination claims, and wage and hour suits;
  • Contract disputes, including those involving construction contracts, supply and service contracts, and contracts falling within the Uniform Commercial Code;
  • Creditor litigation, including lender liability defense, complex commercial collections, and bankruptcy litigation;
  • Intellectual property litigation, including patent, trademark, copyright and trade secret claims;
  • Business torts, including fraud, conspiracy, and tortious interference; and
  • Appellate litigation, successfully defending the verdicts won at trial.

When it comes to protecting your business, Lenhart Pettit has the experience to effectively and efficiently handle the most difficult litigation issues, regardless of the subject. Lenhart Pettit’s depth of experienced litigators are able to adapt quickly to the changing nature of a case as it progresses, and this depth also allows our attorneys to routinely represent clients in every possible forum, from state to federal court and every forum in between. That experience also allows us to effectively counsel clients before a dispute arises, so that it never does.
